Docker has extended its strategic collaboration with Microsoft to simplify code to cloud application development for developers and development teams by more closely integrating with Azure Container Instances (ACI).
Codefresh introduced a brand new user interface and a richly upgraded set of capabilities that makes code changes easier and faster than ever before.
The new May upgrade to Codefresh’s automated continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) tools focuses on helping developers adopt CI/CD with fewer bottlenecks, ensuring a faster time to deployment.
Teams using Codefresh, a CI/CD platform designed for Kubernetes, containers, Serverless, etc., typically see up to 24x faster development cycles. Now, Codefresh has made onboarding new projects even easier.
Codefresh’s May launch includes the following upgrades:
- Project Focused: The new Projects section allows developers to group pipelines, secrets, and permissions into a simple to manage hub. Beyond a robust security model, Projects are perfect for every style of connected code repository, whether using monorepo on GitHub, config repo on GitLab, multiple repos on Azure code, pull request triggers on Bitbucket, or some combination.
- Pipeline Creation Wizard: The biggest challenge facing developers trying to automate CI/CD and DevOps tasks comes from creating continuous integration and continuous delivery pipelines. Codefresh’s new Pipeline Creation Wizard simplifies the process, handling webhook creation, and providing quick start templates for Go, Java, Node.js, Python, Ruby on Rails, Scala, and more.
- Plugin Contributions: Codefresh plugins are simple Docker images. Steps for Codefresh are easier to create because there’s no special API to learn, a model that eliminates the traditional problem of plugin conflict and gives developers more flexibility when choosing which versions of tools to use in pipelines they create.
“The expectation to bring more code to production, faster, has never been higher. At the same time, it’s never been easier for developers to let CI/CD tools do the heavy lifting,” said Dan Garfield, Codefresh’s Chief Technology Evangelist. “There is no reason to wait, worry, or endure the burden of creating useful CI/CD pipelines.”
